20 PRE 2014 AND POST 2014

21 New State-by-State Report Examines Growing Concern Over Prescription Drug Abuse Overdose deaths related to prescription drugs now outnumber those from heroin and cocaine combined, signaling a rapid rise in prescription drug abuse since A new report by Trust for America s Health, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, highlights and scores states on 10 strategies states can use to address this epidemic. Twenty-eight states and Washington, D.C., scored six or less out of the 10 strategies. Two states, New Mexico and Vermont, are implementing all 10. South Dakota is using just two, the fewest of any state. The report calls for urgent action and provides recommendations for full-scale response to end this growing health threat. Use the interactive app to see how your state scored and view trends over time. Learn how your state scores on the 10 key steps to curb abuse.

22 Rx DRUG ABUSE: Michigan Approximately 6.1 million Americans abuse or misuse prescription drugs. Since 1999, overdose deaths involving prescription painkillers have quadrupled and now outnumber those from heroin and cocaine combined. Explore our application and find out how your state is tackling the prescription drug overdose epidemic. Learn which of the ten indicators your state has taken to reduce prescription drug abuse Michigan YES Existence of Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) YES Doctor Shopping Law YES ID Requirement YES Prescriber Education Required or Recommended YES Pharmacy Lock-In Program No Good Samaritan Law No Mandatory Prescriber Use of PDMP No Support for Rescue Drug Use (Naloxone or Narcan) No Physical Exam Requirement No Substance Abuse Treatment Click a topic to learn more

23 WHY IT S IMPORTANT: THE NALOXONE LAW In areas where there is a lack of experience and or understanding of Naloxone, and its safety, or where there is continued inclination or practice of criminalizing drug use, doctors may be nervous to prescribe Naloxone because of liability issues that are not specific to Naloxone. Problems created because of the lax availability and misuse of prescription medication are fairly wellknown now. People (even medical personnel) may be nervous about this drug because of this, especially if they have not had the benefit of experience or knowledge of Naloxone, or naloxone distribution programming, and are unfamiliar with its safety.

24

25 REDUCE THE STIGMA Talk about it!!! Information DOES NOT = enabling Denying access increases risk Open up the issue like any other Chance for intervention Discuss overdose information along with use/recovery/treatment etc., Listen and talk with users/nonusers/politicians/community
